Like 8 years ago some kid ask me for a "drop" for his YouTube show... I had never seen it but I liked his ambition so I gave him one... "This is Felix and whether I'm in New York or LA I'm tuning into Spanish Mike Tv..." . When I went home I quickly looked up what I had just endorsed... HAH... and I saw a bunch of friends brought together by skateboarding. The one thing that stood out though was @SpanishMikeTv had so much love and pride in his click he wanted to film it and share it with the world. @Mannyslaysall took notice as well and put him on to helping with his blog. I would later invite him to stay on my couch and help us with the first ever @Ammousa promo #NewYearsRevolution in 2010. A few years later Mike would leave my couch and be able to afford his own, the same couch Kenny Anderson, Steve Berra, Giovanni Reda, Ty Evans and many more have shared... I still got that same couch and just last week my wife Tanya re-upholstered it. The couch is not the important thing the community is... I don't care to invest in things, I invest in people because they are priceless! Congratulations Spanish on your new job as @PrimitiveSkate team manager you make me proud... #Respect -#ONEFELIX 2015 #INTENTIONAL #CreateOrDie #DoForOneWhatYouWouldDoForMany
If you want to make a trick have one of the best skateboarders in the world chase you... no pressure... Hahaha! Would you believe if I told you in 1988 I made up the nose slide!?! #MarkGonzales and i were skating in Phoenix doing nose stalls in a parking lot... I decided that if you could ollie to nose stall then if you went on an angle and leaned in when you ollied to nose the board should slide just like a board slide. Soon after boards noses got longer, nose slides got real fun and became a standard trick. Although @KelvinHoefler and I didn't make up a new trick today @streetleague we pushed an old one real far... Surround yourself with great people and they will bring the best out of you I guarantee it! -#ONEFELIX 2015 #INTENTIONAL #SkateLIFE #CreateOrDie #SkateAMMO #Noseslide #WhatsYourAmmo photo: @anapaulanegrao

I was #Blessed to speak today at #WellsHighSchool in #Chicago for their @afterschoolmatters program . They are learning some life skills through the creative arts process in the basement of their high school which includes but is not limited to making a skateboard from scratch thanks to OG skateboarder June Bug @chicagooriginal . Ironically about 30 years ago I was in a basement on Mott street in #NewYork doing the very same thing with @mussoinc & #ShutSkateboards . The life changing skill set and core values you can attain from immersing yourself in skate culture is mind blowing if your surround yourself with the right people... Thank you @chicago2113 & @secrethandshake for the call & #Skateboarding for changing my life!

A few months ago I had vision to create a safe space for like minded individuals to come share Gods gifts and @AlliesWorldwide was born. Tonight we celebrate #creativity #design, #art, #tastes and #culture in conversation to one sound. It's humbling how imagination is a spark to the coal that is thought, and how quickly it can become a blazing reality... Thank you @iLuvette for believing in a wild man... #YouMakeMeBetter ! -#ONEFELIX 2015 #INTENTIONAL #AlliesWorldwide #CreateOrDie #DoForOneWhatYouWouldDoForMany
